Laojia Yilu Section 1

My class will be learning Laojia Yilu this coming year; we started last week. All of us already know the Chen 38 short form, so we’ve got a running start.

We count the first section as going up to the first Yan Shou Gong Quan (hidden hand punch). This section differs from the Chen 38 only in the addition of one new move after Lou Xi, which is then followed by a second Xie Xing/Lou Xi combination. So the sequence is:

  1. Jin Gang Dao Dui
  2. Lan Zha Yi
  3. Liu Feng Si Bi
  4. Dan Bian
  5. Jin Gang Dao Dui
  6. Bai He Liang Chi
  7. Xie Xing
  8. Lou Xi
  9. Shang San Bu (Step up three steps)
  10. Xie Xing
  11. Lou Xi
  12. Yan Shou Gong Quan
Shang San Bu

Shang San Bu, Grandmaster Gohring

At the end of the first Lou Xi, he rocks back on the left heel, steps up with the right. He shifts back, swinging the right arm across to the left, then pushes and shifts forward. The right hand is rotated so the fingers point to the left, palm away. The fingers of the left hand point up.

That’s it! Circle the hands to the left and step left into a second Xie Xing. Repeat Lou Xi. We have two videos of this section:
